Metabones speedboster true aperture

21 March 2018 - 07:21 AM

Hi all :)

 

When using a metabones speedboster, how do you really gauge the true aperture the lens is giving you? I mean from a practical point of view, you keep it mind that you get +1 stop of light hitting the sensor. 

 

But from a tech point of view, if your lens is set at let’s say 2.8 (and it’s the fastest the lens can get to), does the camera shows you the added stop? Or is it a passive speedboaster that doesn’t trasmit aperture values?

 

In case it doesn’t trasmit that, you just keep in mind that if the lens is set at 11, you could set f/8 on your light meter?

 

So in practice can you use a ND 0.3 paired to the speedbooster to get a slightly shallower depth of field without having to change your lens aperture?

 

 

Thank you, 

Stefano


Travel camera, what's the best option?

21 November 2017 - 11:52 AM

Heeya guys

 

I'm considering buying a small camera for travelling, just got back this summer by a crazy hitchhiking trip to Nordkapp and the only regreat I have was not having a camera I could have put together a sweet 4min video with.

 

My first choice is the sony a6500 (also considering shooting in Log, I do lots of grading for work). Also buying an adaptor to the E mount. 

 

If I wish to spend a bit more money, I'm considering something between GH5 and alright the a7s II but that might be slightly too expensive for a travel camera, compared to a a6500 which can be 1000E cheaper. 

I've never been fond of the GH4 model, I don't know why, I guess it's something subjective but I prefer a camera that works really well in low light than having a true 10bit 4:2:2 like the GH4/5... 

 

 

Any consideration on the matter?

 

Thank you :)


reel 2017 - feedbacks

Hey guys, 

 

I put together a reel for 2017. Especially after I edited the reel, so I saw it thousands of time and I don't look at it anymore with a fresh eye, I'd love some feedback, sure they will help me learning more and more.

 

Thank you :)
